Brexit obstacles

  • Hopes of a deal on the U.K.’s exit from the European Union as early as next week remains high, even as some officials are warning that obstacles still need to be overcome.
  • The European Union’s chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, said a deal is “within reach” as negotiations over the thorny Northern Irish border seem close to resolution. The pound is trading above $1.3200 this morning amid the optimism.
